>I'm not sure that's completely true. Didja ever read C. S. Lewis's "An
>Experiment in Criticism"?

Thing is, you gotta be real careful when you read Lewis because he tends to use
a lot of straw-man arguments to try and make his case, not just here but in his
other essays.

Much as I enjoy the Screwtape Letters, you have to go into the reading of them
knowing up front that the dealer has dealt himself five aces off the top of the
deck. You're there for the finesse of the cheat, not the truth of the deal.
